Umphrey's McGee - Safety in Numbers 2 Record Set
10th anniversary remastered release on 180 gram double LP vinyl.
Safety In Numbers, released May 2, 2006, is the third studio album by the musically muscular and relentlessly inventive Umphrey’s McGee. For this highly anticipated release, personal chaos provided plenty of fuel for an explosion of collaborative, creative energy. From top to bottom, in its carefully constructed yet deeply felt notes, Safety In Numbers is strong and coolly calculated, yet easy-going and improvisational -- an aural representation of life’s balancing act. Without sacrificing their endearing playfulness, Umphrey’s McGee - dare we say it - is growing up. The album’s eleven original songs offer intriguing insight into these rising stars. For Safety In Numbers, the band’s complex and often spectacular musicianship move from the surface of their craft, and rest instead just under the skin of the music. From top to bottom, in its carefully constructed yet deeply felt notes, Safety In Numbers is a strong and decisive, yet easy-flowing representation of Umphrey’s McGee and a tribute to a friend’s life in the face of a recent loss—a sonic companion to life’s balancing act. The album features guest performances by saxophone sensation Joshua Redman and veteran rocker, Huey Lewis. Album artwork is by famed album designer Storm Thorgerson. Each vinyl comes with a free mp3 download of the newly remastered audio.
